Meet The Governors
The School Governors
School governors are appointed for a four-year term of office, and by a variety of sponsoring bodies. They can be contacted, when necessary, through the school office. The role of the governing body is to decide the aims and policies of the school, its budget and staffing. It monitors the teaching of the National Curriculum in the school, and assists the Headteacher in all matters related to the school and its organisation. The Headteacher and the governing body work in a close and balanced partnership.
Members of the Governing Body also serve on a number of committees. There are three main committees that meet on a termly basis, monitor specific areas of activity and report back to the full governing body when deemed appropriate. These committees are as follows:
- Health and Safety
- Performance and Curriculum (dealing with curriculum and staffing issues)
- Resource Management (dealing with buildings and finance issues)
In addition, some of our governors are linked with specific classes. They visit their classes on a regular basis, attend special ‘Sunshine Assemblies’ and partake in educational visits. This, we feel, enables them to have a much more ‘hands on’ approach and gives them a flavour of the everyday life of the school.
